I was wondering what would be a good glassing schedule for a fish that will be around 5' 10". Strength and weight are equally important to me so I was wondering what would be kind of a happy medium. If there is none what would you suggest. Thank you
A standard glassing schedule for a fish type surfboard is 4 oz bottom, 4 oz + 6 oz on the deck for an optimal strength to weight ratio. For a 5'10" surfboard you'll need 4 yards of
4 oz fiberglass and 2 yards of 6 oz fiberglass.
Place the 6 oz cloth on the deck first then the 4 oz to save weight in the hotcoat since 4 oz is a tighter weave and uses less resin.
Can I some home how tint/colour 4oz fibreglass cloth? Or the resin?
Add tint or pigment to the resin when laminating the fiberglass cloth.
